By The Sea

Hi everyone!! I hope you're enjoying your long weekend!! We aren't doing too much, and I was lucky enough to have some stamping time. Yay!! This card is vaguely based on Beate's weekend sketch #49. Can you see it? Maybe not...but that's where it all began...lol.

I think this mermaid is so cute, and it's from the By the Sea set from Lizzie Anne Designs. The sun and waves are from Shore Thoughts, and the clouds... from Dreaming of Dots (both LAD). I used my Copic Sketch markers to color the mermaid, and Spica Glitter pens to add sparkle here and there.

Stamps: By the Sea, Shore Thoughts, Dreaming of Dots
Card Stock: Soft Sky, Cool Caribbean, GP White, Summer Sun
Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black, Cool Caribbean, Summer Sun, Copic Sketch markers, Spica Glitter pens
Accessories: Peony Dew Drops, Stampin' Dimensionals, Tombo Mono Multi Glue

I have some fun things planned for next week, that I think you all will like. Have a fabulous Memorial weekend, everyone!! Thanks for stopping by!!

**Thanks for all of your kind comments on my new banner!! You all are so sweet, and I am planning to keep it as is for a while. Hugs!!

Your header is gorgeous!

Should be about 730 x 140. If you have photoshop you can transform it. Let me know if you need help

Ooh! I love this! I posted using this same stamp for a birthday card for my daughters friend- I like yours better but mine uses the friends favorite colors! I'm also using this for an ATC SWAP I'm doing. I've been coloring little mermaids for 2 nights now- good thing I love this set- teeheehee! Hope you are having a super holiday weekend!
